Cigar Aficionado Cigar of the Year




Padron Family Reserve 45 



Padron Family Reserve 45 Years

Just in this week from Padron is the Family Reserve 45 in a Maduro and a Natural blend. This new release of a very rare cigar is made from very old Nicaraguan tobaccos. The tobacco has seen 10 years of aging and commemorates 45th anniversary of the Padron Cigar Company. The 45 is a box press cigar six inches in length and a 52 ring guage. The Family Reserve Cigar has never before been offered to the public and has always been reserved for the Padron family events. The Family Reserve 45 is the finest cigar made and we are lucky to be able to offer them to you. This cigar will not last long so hurry in to AG Cigars to reserve yours.

Cain Straight Ligero Cigar







Making a Cain By Sam Leccia

Making a Straight Ligero cigar requires a unique understanding of the leaf. Ligero comes from the top of the tobacco plant. Its direct exposure to the sun darkens and thickens this leaf. Smaller than leaves lower on the plant, it also enjoys a concentration of nutrients. Habano Seed Ligero is recognized as the most full flavored leaf on a plant.

Additionally, the region in which this Habano Seed is grown plays a significant role in its flavor and strength.

Esteli Ligero

is the strongest of all the Ligeros. It is used with care as it can overpower the other fillers in a cigar.

Condega Ligero

is a medium body Ligero grown further north of Esteli. While still a very full body leaf, it's more tame strength exhibits complex richness.

Jalapa Ligero

is the smoothest of these powerhouses. Jalapa is the northern most tobacco region of Nicaragua. Jalapa Ligero is grown in a valley and enjoys less direct sun, the result is a full body leaf with a more noticeable range of flavor.

The triple fermented Nicaraguan wrapper adds complexity to the ligero fillers and is instock now in limited supplies. I am expecting several shipments of this great new cigar during the next few weeks. Stop in and give one a try.

Illusione Epernay
Topic: Illusione Epernay

The Epernay cigar is named for the heart of the French Champagne region. The blend is lighter and patterned after the original ECCJ release. The wrapper is shade grown corojo replacing some of the spicy character of the other blends with a sweeter tobacco finish. Unfortunately this is a limited production cigar and one of the finest cigars I have had the pleasure of smoking. Be sure to stop in and pick a few for yourself. You won't be disappointed.

We are well stocked with Illusione by Dion and look forward to his newest offering due to be released this fall, the Illusione Nosotros. More to follow as the details arrive.

Liga Privada #9 by Drew Estate
Topic: Liga Privada #9

We have a few new additions to our lineup. We are now an authorized retailer for Drew Estate Liga Privada #9. Many of you may recognize the name as the parent company for the Acid cigar. This is not part of the Acid brand. The Liga Privada #9 is a traditional cigar created from seven different aged tobaccos from seven different farms. This cigar is medium to full bodied with just a touch of spice. The flavors are rich and smooth. This is a very limited cigar and as of this letter Drew Estate has released this cigar to less than 200 retailers nationwide.

Drew Estate introduced the new Liga Privada T52. This is a stalk cut sungrown Habano wrapper with a blend of 7 distinct aged tobaccos. This will be a bolder addition to the Liga Privada #9 and should arrive in October or November. It will be available in a Toro and Robusto size. I will post more information as it becomes available.
